The Jesus Prayer

God, have mercy on me, a sinner.—Luke 18:13 (NIV)

When we give God our all, we must offer it with the admission that we are human—flawed and imperfect—in ways we can’t completely understand. When we offer our weakness and sin, God offers a new heart and spirit.

God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
